Why, you ask, should you get excited about the 84th ranked prospect in the class of 2006 and the fact that he's visiting KU? Because sometimes, recruiting services are wrong. Remember that Micah Downs was unranked on many lists before last April before suddenly vaulting among the elite of the class. Plus, Lewis is not the 84th ranked recruit in every service. My recruiting list from last week has Lewis listed at 56 (Scout), but I suspect that will be pretty far off when the next round of updates comes in. If you have a sharp eye, you might have noticed Dwight Lewis's name on the list of 2005 Parade All-Americans. He's one of only 6 juniors to be on that list.
That's a pretty big disparity between top 84 and top 6. My guess is that Self and his crew know just what they're doing. If they want to offer a visit to a player, given their track record, I think we should be pretty excited about that player. He's playing in the Kingwood Classic here in a couple of days, and I hope to have a report back on KU prospects from that tournament.
